The first street skateboarding Olympic qualifier event in USA and the first Olympic qualifiers for park skateboarding reached the end here in Long Beach. Dew tour 2019 has been a huge event from every point of view: besides the crowdy attendance and the amazing side events, it has been an awesome 4-days skateboarding contest.
Over 300 skaters competed in the event, coming from 46 countries, and only 32 passed to the finals - 8 for each competition.
Surely newsworthy that 12 countries and 4 continents were represented in the finals.
